black friday 2011 brought blowout numbers for retailers across the country but the success could be bad news for those of us who were still looking to save a little bit because stores may not have to offer great deals any longer. how can you spread the holiday cheer without emptying your bank account? patricia powell is the founder and c.e.o. of the poured concrete you well financial group. ing thanks for coming? >> thanks for having me. >> a good news bad news type of thing. good news for the retailers but maybe not great for us. >> it has been very good news for the retailers. last weekend the average shopper spent $400 and that is 9% about more than last year and when you go to online while the dollars are less $150. that is a 24% increase over last year. so the economy is doing something here and you can see it in the retail numbers.
6:22 pm
that is good news. >> i want to talk to you about the economy and the jobs numbers that came out yesterday in a minute. but for the shoppers out there, and those of us who still need to do our shopping, does it make sense to get it done now or do you think that maybe as we get closer to christmas and hanukkah there might be deals in the offing? >> you know, rick, experts are divided on this one. some experts saying the retail numbers were so good but the inventory is low and under control and retailers don't have to give you the deals. other experts just as qualified saying the exact opposite that they are going to be giving you deals because the years have been lean and they want to get them while they can and the consumers want to get their share of that money. right now it is unclear whether the deals going to continue. but the buyer needs to beware always. >> what about the pie buyer on?
6:23 pm
>> likely to be more deals on the web shopping onsign as opposed to going to a store? >> not necessarily but the buyer online has a real advantage because he can comparison shop from his comfy chair at home with his bunny slippers on. question when you are in the mall if you are not prepared you are out there and you see the item and you are buying it. so regardless of how you are buying it, you have to be a very savvy shop they are year and you have to have a battle plan to go out or you are going to be taken to the cleaners. >> how did you know i have bunny slippers? >> mine are penguins. >> talk macro here. a couple of minutes. do we dare to dream? just ahead the unemployment numbers came out. still not where they need to be but they are down. the shoppers this h who went ot and spent on average 400 bucks on black friday, that is a sign of consumer confidence. >> what we are looking at is in the last 12 months almost 1.5
6:24 pm
net new jobs were created. and that means that there is people out there who have jobs. now, the fact that the unemployment rate went down this week isn't that good because it really reflected that some people just gave up and so we have this long-term unemployment problem that we have to deal with. but there still are jobs, we are still creating them. a lack luster jobs recovery although the economic recovery is chugging along. >> a message for lawmakers down in d.c. as they look at the extension of the payroll tax deduction and look at continuing unemployment insurance. any message it is a relates to the holiday shopping season and what it might do for the overall economy if they don't get something done? >> well, you know, i have really mixed feelings and you will have to forgive me for a minute because i'm. >> going to talk out of both sides of my mouth on this issue. when you put money in people's
6:25 pm
pockets it is a good thing. generally i'm in favor of any kind of tax decrease. people are bound to spend the money more eye fibbently than we do in washington. on the other hand, that money is being borrowed and there will come a time when the bill has to be paid and the rest of us have to figure out how to pay the bill. notice barney frank left this week and people said maybe he is leaving because it is tough down there now. he is one tough guy, he is of the smartest guys in congress. he is leaving the table before the bill is due. i have mixed feelings about that. if we are going to have tax decreases let's find a way to pay for them with a decrease of spending. >> speak out of both sides of your mouth, you could work in washington. >> i at least acknowledge it. >> founder and ceo of the powell financial group. always good to see you, pat.
6:26 pm
thanks for coming in. >> thank you for having me. >> no bunny slippers for rick. adjusting my christmas list there. coming up, herman cain hanging up his conductor's hat. why the cain train is making a sudden stop and why the man behind it all says you haven't heard the last of him yet. capital one's new cash rewards card gives you a 50% annual bonus! so you earn 50% more cash. according to research, everybody likes more cash. well, almost everybody... ♪

6:32 pm
i actually felt for herman cain. i don't think it was as exceptional as his presence was in the republican field just by sheerly being a black man in the republican field. i felt like i was missing a little bit in his leadup. it felt like he was there to promote his website. >> you mean today. you thought that was all about it today? >> i thought it was about promoting his website. i don't feel like herman cain elevated much in the debate in the republican field. you know, he was -- >> well, i hear cal chuckling in the background. take it away? >> first of all, any conservative republican of a condition american who has a solid faith is going be a target for the left in this country. the last thing that the democratic left wants to happen is for any self-made man to catch on. they tried to destroy clarence thomas. they have smeared certainly people like condoleezza rice,
6:33 pm
all calling her all sorts of names. if an independent african american solid conservative person rises through the ranks there is a threat to the welfare dependency culture that is the base of the democratic party. >> you are telling me that those people you are referring to, they are the ones who were there if in fact those allegations are true they are the ones who made that happen? >> well, i don't know about who made it happen but i have seen this in a long career in washington happen on more than one occasion. this stuff gets leaked, it is death by a thousand cuts. there is a double standard applied to republicans and democrats. >> not at all. >> the democrat is just say -- it is a private mat. there is speculations about the leak but we will not deal with speculations. let's move on right now. alexis you mentioned the cainsolution .com which is his plan b that he made today that he is going have this website there and going to continue to be the voice of the people. but i ask you, alexis, how
6:34 pm
strong will cain's voice be? will it be as strong as he is predicting it to be? >> i think it depends on everyone is going to wait for his endorsement. once he gives the endorsement i think that is going to be it. i don't think either of the top two candidates going to have herman cain out there stumping for him. i think his voice is really going to diminish significantly. >> i agree with that. i think that is, correct. if you are not in the spot light then you are not in any light at all. i hope we can get back to stuff that really matters now. this has been an incredible distraction. a $15 trillion debt. iran on the verge of nuclear weapons. the media have been all over this for weeks now and i would like to get back to debating real issues which is one of the things that newt gingrich is trying to do and i think quite effectively. >> and once everybody gets back on track if you will now that the cain train has possibly
6:35 pm
derailed in terms of his run for the white house, when they get back on track, cal, what are we going to hear from the republicans regarding the solutions you would like to hear about? >> i think newt and mitt romney among. i think michele bachmann, ron paul have been talking about how to solve the debt and basically about cutting spending. for the left, every dollar that is spent is somehow worthy. you can't cut anything or granny will go over the cliff or your child will starve. once we get back to the substance of the issues we will see solutions come out. >> i think we will see more protecting of the 1% and a little less focus on the working class and poor which we really need to do. >> interesting debate. sorry i didn't have more time for you but i do appreciate the time that we did have together. thanks, guys. see you next time. they are usually trained to handle extreme stations and now some former combat troops are taking the tools they picked up
6:36 pm
